September 10, 1920 ~ April 20, 2018

Ford Johnson, beloved father and husband, passed away April 20, 2018 at age 97, and is now with his Savior. He was born on September 10, 1920 and grew up on McNeil Island, WA on his parent's farm.
Ford served in the Army during WWII and worked at Washington Door and Buffelen Woodworking before moving with his family to Vancouver, WA where he then worked for Fort Vancouver Plywood for many years.
Friends and family knew Ford as having a dynamic and colorful personality. He had a quick wit and teased his friends regularly. Ford loved animals, traveling, talking politics, singing songs and chopping wood. He authored many memorable phrases.
His family knew Ford as a deeply loving father
and husband, and he will be greatly missed.
Ford is survived by his children, Debra, Gary and Ronald.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Ester Johnson; his brother, Reinhold; his sisters, Muriel Hrvatin and Ruth Coleman; his first wife, Edna (1974); and his second wife, Dolores.
The family would like to thank Kaiser Permanente Hospice for the kind support and care they gave our father.
A memorial service will be held at the Ridgefield Church of the Nazarene, 747 Pioneer St., Ridgefield, WA on Friday, June 1, 2018 at 11:00 a.m.
